Holidays where ethnic cleansing has taken place
Sir

Holidays where ethnic cleansing has taken place

As a Greek Cypriot forced to flee from an invading Turkish army from the very areas that you promote as holiday destination in the illegally occupied area of north Cyprus I find your reader offer extremely upsetting. You fail to grasp that you are rewarding warmongers and aggressors and usurpers of property from those who legally own properties yet are denied the basic human right to return.

A paper of your repute should be familiar with the ethnic cleansing of Greek Cypriots and the facts are indisputable. Cyprus remains occupied by the Turkish military with 40,000 troops enforcing the partition of the Island and where 180,000 Greek Cypriots became refugees, approximately one third of the total Island population. Shame on you.
